Foveran (Scottish Gaelic: Fobharan) is the name of both a parish and village in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The village is located 11 miles north of Aberdeen and four miles southeast of Ellon; the main group of houses and the village school are located adjacent to the main A90 trunk road.
The origin of the place-name is from the Gaelic word fuaran indicating a place with a little spring and appears as Furene in c. 1150.
